Prosecutors have called a US soldier a "traitor" for allegedly leaking classified information on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

It is claimed that Bradley Manning released 700-thousand documents through the WikiLeaks anti-secrecy website.

Prosecutors have been making closing arguments at a court martial. Manning's defence team are due to give their arguments on Friday.
